I wasn't sure at first whether I would like this book, but by the end I really loved it! It is so funny and fantastical and unusual--I love the beginning, "There was a father and a mother, a girl and a boy, and some pets. When the book was closed it was night in the book and the family slept. When the book was open, it was morning and the family woke up." Then, they begin their day--all the characters have something to do, except the little girl. So she sets out to find HER story. Along the way, she bumps into some members of her family who are enjoying THEIR story--but, in the end, she comes up with a different solution for herself. There is also some awesome "reader/character" interaction when the character talks to you--so funny! It's also a nice introduction to different genres of books. The illustrations are so detailed and humorous. Great fun!
